Our exclusive mix of drought tolerant grasses and Microclover® is an eco-friendly, low maintenance sustainable lawn. As its name implies, Rough & Ready holds up well to wear- a great solution for play areas with kids and dogs.
Rough & Ready is more shade tolerant than our other alternative lawn options. Once established it requires little supplemental irrigation or fertilizer and tolerates acidic and shady planting sites.
The Microclover in the mix feeds the companion grasses with nitrogen making them look great all year long. The extremely drought-tolerant Microclover maintains a nice dark green color once established and should not require irrigation in most climates. Its inclusion with the grasses allows the soil to retain more moisture in dry periods which sustains an overall green appearance of grass through the summer.
Mow about once a month to maintain this lawn at a height between 3 and 5 inches.
